Oblem is i find drivers but than he wants to install and check in the computer what he needs. This is not possible because i can't go on internet with this laptop.

you might have to download the driver to a portable usb drive then install it from there to get an internet connection
You will have to open up your network connections. Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled. Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look for network adapters + expand Ethernet driver if you see a yellow Question / Exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update/reinstall the driver for the device If you cant install the driver Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios. Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press Enter make sure its enabled then recheck the driveri t should be there k the driver it should be there make sure its enabledPci device arrows key scroll to nstalled if you computer came with a motherboard disk the driver could be on it or this disk provided by your ISP provider Internet Service Provider or you might have to download one if these packages are not the right On the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for tick in the box for windows software or all software box IE: Motherboard name Wireless or Ethernet driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

I have no ethernet controller driver for the windows 7 ultimate

The drivers that you need for devices such as sound, video, ethernet, etc. Are usually contained on a driver CD that was shipped from the manufacturer with the device. If the device is built into the motherboard, the drivers will be on a CD that was provided with the computer. If you do not have this CD, you will have to visit either the website of the manufacturer who made the motherboard, or the website of the company who made the computer to download the drivers that you need.
Once you get to the website, look in the support or downloads section of the site for the model number of your computer (or the model number of the motherboard or plug-in device).and select the drivers you need for download.
In the event that you cannot locate the driver(s), look for a "contact us" link on the website support or home page. This link will provide you with contact information (phone or E-mail) and allow you communicate your problem to them.
If you cannot find an ethernet driver for Windows 7, you will have to buy an ethernet card. You can buy them on-line for under $20 from places like

Acer x1300 - reinstalled vista and have three yellow warnings in device manager: Coprocessor, Ethernet controller, sm bus controller? How do I fix?

Easiest way would be to use a seperate computer and download the drivers onto a usb stick and use that to install the drivers. You can't download straight to your computer since your Internet won't work (Ethernet Controller isn't installed) You can also burn a CD if a USB doesn't work.

You can get the drivers from here.

I reformated my pc and when it was done i downloaded the usual applicatons i was going to watch a movie which i watched before and i couldn't hear a sound what do i do.............?,,,,,,,where can i...

Do you know what type of your motherboard..if you know, then you can googling(google) your driver..if you dont know, then you can try update using device manager.

I'm very sure when you view device manager, your adapater will have problem with driver..

Picture show device manager that have problem
(actually, i think your device manager also like this)
You see question mark icon (?) here with yellow?

that mean driver wasn't compatible with that device or it still don't have driver for that.

Right click at that icon, properties
then,window will pop up
find driver tab
and update..
it will need more time and internet connection

2nd solution:
you see the name for your device right?
write their name and number full/complete..
and google .find driver..

Samsung galaxy s I9000 mtp driver

  1. The x86 link gets you an exe file. This can be unpacked/unzipped with 7zip freeware in exactly the same way as a zip file.
  2. Navigate to device manager (control panel ->Device Manager or Administrative tools -> computer management -> device manager)
  3. Navigate to "portable devices" or "MTP" in device manager, whichever one shows up with the error. There will probably be a little yellow error triangle on your device that has the problem.
  4. Right clicking on the faulty MTP device in device manager and hitting "update driver software" gave me the option of searching automatically and browsing my computer manually. Don't select Search automatically as it will fail. Click browse my computer for driver software - the manual way and navigate to the folder you unzipped the drivers into, tick include subfolders and hit OK.
  5. The drivers will load and indicate your I9000 (Galaxy S) device was connected.

I need the driver for the vga card and ethernet controller

With the computer off and the ac line cord unplugged take the cards out and obtain the model number of each card and then go to the manufacturers website and get the latest driver for your operating system.if you cant get online with your pc you will have to download the drivers from another pc and then put them on a flash drive or cd and then insert the flash drive via a usb port or if you have a cd insert it into the cd drive.either way you do it you will have to execute the file you downloaded and let the self installer do the rest and restart the computer if told to.if the drivers installed correctly you should be able to go to the device manager located in the control panel under the system-hardware tabs.You should have no yellow question marks on any of the devices in the list of devices.if you do then double check to make sure you downloaded the right driver.Some devices have different versions so pay attention to any model numbers followed by a ver.# especially ethernet cards.The vga card is either a ati or nvidia.hope this helps and good luck.

Ethernet controller and USB are missing on XP

Yes, the device-drivers can be downloaded from the Internet, to one computer, and then burned onto a CD-writable, or written to a USB memory-stick, and then the files can be physically moved to the other computer.

But, "which" device-drivers is completely dependent on which computer that you have. Some motherboards have "integrated" network-adapters and "integrated" USB-ports.

Easiest solution is to take an add-in PCI network-adapter card, and install it, and connect the Ethernet cable to its socket.
Hopefully, Windows will recognize that card, and automatically load the correct device-drivers from the C: drive, i.e., without Internet access.
Or, if you buy an add-in card, it may come with a CD-ROM that contains the device-driver.

Once the device-drivers have been installed, you will have Internet connectivity. Access:
and click "Custom" scan, and then click "Optional Hardware".
Windows Update should find the device-drivers for your motherboard, and install them. Then, you can remove the add-in card, and connect the Ethernet cable to the "on-mother-board" network socket.
